Rule changes in hurling

I think the sin bin and a penalty is an over reaction. It should have been a free from 21 and a sin bin. Now teams will be ultra defensive. teams will try slow down the game during the sin bin. It will lead to forwards diving inside the 21, Should the forward not be sin bin for diving also. Will thi...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Heard Michael fennely saying that their building for the future, I heard that every year for the last 10 years. Don't worry about 2022, offaly need to get they best 15 hurlers out in 2020 . Looking at that panel, there are 2 defenders with real experience b connelly and d King , there is no quality ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Back to level 5 so both leinster final deferred. Does not look like our senior hurling final will be played any time soon. I be interested to hear opinions on offaly senior all star team for 2020 in hurling and football. Players would have to played senior a in 2020 só some county lads won't be elig...

Re: We need to talk about Leinster GAA

I agree but small counties like offaly don't matter to croke Park. Even look at the football all ireland, Dublin Cooper should have been black carded as should have Fitzsimons but the big counties get away with things. Limerick could have got two red card in the hurling final for striking below the ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I feel its the correct decision to keep m fennely but offaly must get promoted in league and championship in 2021.
No excuses he has to deliver that and create a of bit spirit around our hurling team because their is a hunger for hurling in offaly that needs to be tapped into.

All ireland hurling semi final

Interested in people's opinion on G heggerty tackle on Joe Canning, to me it was a red card but also he should have been yellow carded for persistent fouling also, he had at 8 fouls. Did K Hayes not run half the pitch with the ball in his hand?? Even a gillane tap on the Galway keeper could have bee...

Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

I see where Ben ó Connor of Cork lamenting about where the game is going. He says hurling is like soccer non contact. I always rember é Coughlan and Tony Doran doing battle in the 80 S. Savage but on the ball , when hurling was a man's game, we could honestly put some of the top camogie players out ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

Will Michael fennelly and Co be held to account for a disastrous 2020? Having watch training twice I was not surprised, junior b would have more cutting in it, but we need to move on quickly offaly have to get back in leinster by 2023 and looking at the best young hurlers around the county they 2023...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I don't agree that offaly were unlucky, Down were the better team. We have failed in both league and championship to make progress, but I am not surprise loot at the team only 3 guys from this years County finals, surely those guys are in form players. 4 starters are senior B, there is a huge differ...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

I don't think the offaly management are blameless, they pick the team it's winer hurling, but it's third tier hurling, so u need men. Look at tipp Breen Bonner and MC Cormac made some difference because they brought size and power. We need a few lads around 30 battle harden . C gath ó Kelly and l La...

Re: 1984 Centenary All Ireland on Gold last night

Ger Coughlan was small but deceptive strong , I rember a guy been sent out to rough him up in a club match.
rember chatting him a week later and he was still sore and Coughlan never pulled a wrong stroke. He was fit, strong and 6 inches taller but he couldn't belive how hardy Coughlan was.

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

A win is a win, its all about getting back to Joe mac.
That team wouldn't beat st rynagh or kk but it's about promotion and blooding young guys. this year.
We seem to be playing a running game , I think half our scores came from free which is a worry and we didn't score a goal.

Re: Standard of Senior club hurling in Offaly

I agree this light ball is a problem, there are great scores but the ball is in play a lot less, a goalkeeper can land the ball on the 21 with a breeze behind him whereas back then a score from 70 was rare. Another thing that bugs me is the size of panels, back them 24 was your panel now it could be...

Re: Offaly Hurling 2020

The rule are not been applied 3 steps 2 catches, no throwing the Ball, no barging with the ball, if those rules were enforced , lads would have to move the ball instead of playing for frees. What would Dj Carey score if player gave him a yard of space, best forward i ever saw by a distance. There ar...
